You might not think to draw a link between the television shows "Parks & Recreation," "Magnum P.I.," the movie "The Big Lebowski" and professional wrestling.

That's why Daniel Winnik did it for you.

The Minnesota Wild forward is set to take part in "Movember," which asks participants to grow a mustache while raising funds and awareness to a multitude of health issues, everything from prostate and testicular cancer to mental health.

November, of course, is also part of the ongoing "Hockey Fights Cancer" initiative. The league-wide event, in which the hockey community support cancer patients and their families, just named cancer survivor Nicholle Anderson as ambassador. She is the wife of Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson.

On Wednesday, Winnik announced his participation in Movember by asking fans which iconic mustache he should grow.

The four choices of soup strainer he posted were Ron Swanson's (played by Nick Offerman) from the NBC sitcom "Parks & Recreation," The Stranger's (played by Sam Elliot) from the movie "The Big Lebowski," Hulk Hogan's from his wrestling days or Thomas Magnum's (Tom Selleck) from "Magnum, P.I."

Winnik may have presented the easiest multiple choice test of all time, because there are no wrong answers here.
